I’M THE ONE WHO FLIES THE HIGHEST…
You are upside down, twenty feet in the air, experiencing a moment of weightlessness. For an instant, time seems to stand still. You peer down at the faces far below you, reach out to the sky and think to yourself: so this is how it feels to fly…
Trampoline is one of the most exhilarating sports there is. From the very first day, you can experience the thrill of leaping higher than you ever have before. Then, as you build your strength and skill, you can challenge yourself to go higher and higher. The sky really is the limit.
Whether you already enjoy bouncing in your back garden or want a thrilling way to get fit, you will find a lot to love about trampolining. With classes for adults, teens and children as young as eight, getting started couldn’t be easier. First you will learn how to perform single aerial tricks and maintain your rhythm. Then, as your skills and confidence grow, you will build up some incredible big-air stunts. If you want you can even show off your stuff at one of the competitions for your age group. Of course, if you would prefer to bounce just for fun and fitness, that’s great too.

Our Trampoline Gymnastics (TG) program trains boys and girls for three levels of competition: Provincial, National and Elite. Each athlete is encouraged to compete at the level that is a fit for their ability, commitment and age.
Our youngest members are in a recreational or developmental program and train 1 – 2 hours, once or twice a week.
Once our gymnasts get to higher levels, they train with us 3 or more times a week in a year-round program. They devote 9 to 12 hours to training each week, depending on their degree of commitment and competition goals. Once our gymnasts become interested in succeeding in competition, we suggest a minimum of 3 to 4 days training per week.
We place our athletes in training groups according to their age, ability, number of days committed to training per week, and their competitive goals. These goals are set in consultation with their coaches and the options open to them at their age.
Competitions: Provincial level competitions are governed by Gymnastics BC. These competitions are a good fit for new competitors and gymnasts who want to train for fewer hours.
National and Elite competitions are governed by Gymnastics Canada and they provide opportunities for interprovincial and international competition. Gymnasts who compete at this level train for many hours and have a high-skill level. Their goals may include joining Team Canada!
Who is this program for? Boys and girls with a strong work ethic who enjoy competing, want to develop high-level trampoline gymnastics skills, and who are committed to training three times a week or more. The TG program is by invitation or assessment only. Please contact Member Services to arrange an assessment for this program.
How do I register? Programs run from September to August (12 mos). Admittance into the program is generally for a summer or September start. You may register online or in person.
